Hello ,


I have an Exchange 2007 installation and a customer also has an exchange server and he wants to use our exchange only for outgoing messages.

If i am right i must create a receive connector with his public ip ?

And from his side he must create a send connector with the public ip of our edge servers ?

Thanks

Correct - you would set up a receive connector on your server that'll only accept emails from their outside IP (or subnet). You'll need to permit open relay on this connector. This should help you get that set up:

On the customer's server, you'll configure the send connector to use your server as a smart host.
